Redneck to Cyborg

A Shared Transformation

The dancer Stephanie Cumming grew up in northern Alberta, geographically and culturally isolated by the Canadian woods. In 2003 she met the Austrian dancer Chris Haring and an intense creative relationship began, which marked the starting point of the choreographic trademark of the Liquid Loft company. In the joint work of Cumming and Haring, the boundaries of authorship dissolve in a way that inspiring and being inspired have become interchangeable in function as well as in interaction. So what does being a muse mean in such a context ? Being more than a purely passive object of inspiration challenges dancers as well as choreographers. Redneck to Cyborg: A Shared Transformation is Stephanie Cumming’s very special biography about her transformation and about Liquid Loft.
